We believe the MicroSecure Card Reader has the potential to change the face of the transaction industry
OREM, Utah (PRWEB) October 29, 2008
ProPay's patent-pending process includes the credit or debit card information being encrypted at swipe and stored in coded form for later processing or being transmitted and processed real-time through ProPay's secure virtual terminal from any Internet-connected PC.
"We believe the MicroSecure Card Reader has the potential to change the face of the transaction industry," said Greg Pesci, ProPay Executive Vice President of Business Strategy. "Because the cardholder information is encrypted at swipe and then securely transmitted and processed though our virtual terminal, this is the first truly secure, end-to-end card processing solution we are aware of."
Released at an introductory price of US$99 plus a small monthly support fee, the ProPay MicroSecure Card Reader is also affordable.
Market research shows that more than 6.9 million small and mobile merchants run credit and debit card transactions. Since its recent launch, over 2,000 home party consultants, mobile service providers, schools, charities, fund raisers, fast food restaurants, and door-to-door salespeople have purchased and are using the ProPay MicroSecure Card Reader to quickly and securely capture and process their customers' credit and debit cards.
"This goes well beyond helping these merchants avoid the risks and headaches of writing down cardholder information for later processing," added Mr. Pesci. "We find most don't fully appreciate the PCI requirements and risks they and their acquirers bear. Rather than expecting these smaller merchants to spend vast sums of money on PCI compliance or to learn how to secure their systems from every possible breach, they can use the ProPay MicroSecure Card Reader to remove cardholder data from their systems altogether. By removing the data, they can remove most, if not all, of the cardholder data security risks."
